"The white fish is on the plate."
Translation:Piscis candidus est in patella.
What do you mean with "in this way?" Not at the end of the sentence?
That's exactly what this discussion started about.
I did not say never. I was trying to say that it is common to find esse somewhere other than the end of a sentence with some authors. That does not instantly imply that I think they never put it at the end of a sentence. Some authors tended to put it at the end of a sentence and it would be 'rare' to find it elsewhere.
Do you have a point you are trying to get across?
Sorry if I didn't reply sooner. Vivian asked: “Why isn’t est at the end of sentence?" You replied “ It doesn't have to be. (The verb) esse is commonly used in this manner". I understood that the verb to be is commonly not put at the end of a sentence. Now, "commonly" doesn't mean "always", but it's very close to. Am I wrong?
